This is one of my favorite teas. The first time I had “milk oolong” it was at Vital-T Leaf shop in Seattle, where they brewed it for me to taste. Once I ran through that stash, I turned to the Internet to mail order some more. This particular one from Holy Mountain is one of the best of this variety I’ve mail ordered, and has been for 2 years in a row, so I will definitely order it again from them.

I find sometimes the flavor gets richer as the tea cools, and that the milky notes come out more when not scalding hot.

Great to see you here, Cecilia! I never would have tried this tea if not for you and this opened doors to me. So thanks for the recommendation. It is a magnificent tea.

Small world, isn’t it? I’ve only been on Steepster one day and the very first tea I looked at had a comment from you, and I thought… could it be the same Carolyn? Sure looks like it! :-)

Milk oolong was definitely one of the teas that pushed me over from just liking tea to wanting to know everything about it. Wine, scotch, cheese, they are lovely and wonderful to know about, but were just a warm-up for me and tea.
